Potso Dog Park to get facelift

Dog lovers in Tigard will need to steer clear of Potso Dog Park for the next two weeks, as crews install new irrigation in the city’s largest dog park.

The city will install an irrigation system at the park in order to improve the quality of the turf grass.

Potso, located off Southwest Hunziker Road, will close to the public beginning Tuesday, Feb. 4. The park will remain closed until Thursday, Feb. 13.

The construction is part of the $17 million parks bond measure approved by voters in 2011. The bond purchased several new parks within the city, as well as pays for improvements to several parks, including Potso.

Healthier turf will reduce wet, muddy conditions during the rainy season and make the terrain safer for dogs and more aesthetically pleasing for their owners, the city said in a release. This spring, the city also plans to pave the existing gravel parking lot, creating more uniform parking spaces, increased accessibility and less dust. 

Not sure where to go instead? The next closest dog park is Ash Street Dog Park, off Southwest Burnham Road, in downtown Tigard.
